My daughter had emergency surgery Saturday night. [View all]

Her fiance called from Orlando, where he has had to be for work. She is in Madison.

She had a piece of metal stuck in her throat. At first, they though it might be a shard of metal from opening a can with a can opener. But it does not look like that. They thought i could have been a piece of steel wool, but she uses a plastic scrubber, and does not have any of that in her house. It looks like a staple from a food package. I think the food industry is getting more lax all the time.

And she is a musician. She plays the flute. She has two concerts coming up in two weeks.

She came through the surgery just fine, and is resting at home with her two cats. We went to Madison and made sure she had everything she needed, plenty of soft foods, and all her meds. The doc said she is doing well. She can even play her two concerts.

Scary times.
